Question Gamling's Book of Middle Earth Records

This is where the greatest, the least, and the middlest are kept. I can't explain it, so an example must do.

Example

Q: What is the brightest of stars?
A: Earendil.

Who achieved the loudest voice by a mortal man?

What about Morgoth?

In token of this he set the Silmarils in his crown. His hands were burned black by the touch of those hallowed jewels, and black they remained ever after; nor was he ever free from the pain of the burning, and the anger of the pain.
